OPERATION: NEW DOWNSTAIRS is complete. And with a F#@%ING EXCLAMATION POINT!
I finally succeeded in hiring the perfect contractor. Best Value Home Improvements did a FLAWLESS job replacing all but one of the interior doors in my house (they all happen to be on the lower, non-entry level; we live on a hill, remember), removing one closet, building another, putting a pocket door in my master walk-in even though the ceiling slopes four inches, and replacing all the downstairs trim.
They didn’t surprise me with any expenses, f#@% anything up, or make a mess. Ever. They cleaned up TO MY STANDARDS every night, and when the job was done, they even PUT ALL MY CRAP IN MY NEW LAUNDRY ROOM CLOSET AND ORGANIZED IT FOR ME!
Manny, Bat(man), and other guy whose name I can’t remember (sorry) – you guys are THE. BEST. Seriously.
I love my new downstairs. It surpasses all my expectations. And now to celebrate…
MEET THE DOORS!
(and the closets)
Next (after I crack this bottle of champagne over a doorknob and down it): we move on to… OPERATION: DECORATE DOWNSTAIRS (finally)!
